BRIAN BORU’S FOOTBALL

Training for u12s, u10s and u8s is on in Clogheen GAA pitch at 6pm Thursday. Everyone to attend.

Our u12s took part in the Munster Ladies Football Go Games blitz in Newtownshandrum on Saturday. A great day was had by all who attended. The girls played with great skill and displayed excellent team work. In our group we played Eire Og, Donoughmore, Mullinahone and Ballincollig. Our u16’s started their championship last Monday, with a game against Fethard. This is a very young team and under the circumstances of various injuries the girls produced a good performance. Unfortunately Fethard were the stronger team and deserved to win on the day. Team manager Garreth Byrne is currently preparing them for their next game, so it’s important all girls attend training.

FR SHEEHY’S JUVENILE GAA

Under 10. Fr. Sheehy’s u10 footballers are taking part in a blitz this Saturday in Clogheen with neighbouring clubs Ballylooby, Newcastle and Ballyporeen.

Under 12. Well done to the u12 football team who had a good win over Moyle Rovers in the opening game of the Premier Games by 5-7 to 1-2 in Clogheen last Sunday evening. Cormac Flynn, Conor Walsh and hat-trick hero Dylan O’ Brien were the top performers for the Sheehy’s on the night.

Under 16. The u16 footballers took on Carrick Davins last Sunday in Clogheen in r ound two of the championship. A brilliant second quarter led by Ben Hyland who scored 1-6 saw Sheehy’s seven points ahead at the break, but the Davins dominated for much of the game only for poor finishing to let them down. Final score, Fr. Sheehy’s 1-11 ; Davins 2-5.

Under 14. Well done to Fr. Sheehy’s u14 players James Conway and Colin English who played for the winning South Tipperary u14 football team in the inter divisional tournament in Ballylooby on the Bank Holiday Monday, with James in goal and Colin in the forwards scoring 3-3 in the tournament.
